WESTMINSTER, Colo. - June 5, 2014 - PRLog -- WESTMINSTER, Colorado -- June 5, 2014 -- On Saturday, May 31st, 51 future electricians graduated from the IECRM (www.iecrm.org) Four-Year Electrical Apprentice Program at a special graduation ceremony at the Westin in Westminster, Colorado. An audience of more than 300 family members and friends, spouses, instructors, employers, and staff attended the event. The graduation ceremony and student gifts were generously sponsored by IDEAL Industries (www.idealindustries.com) and Milwaukee Tool (www.milwaukeetool.com).

IECRM graduates are unique in that they have accomplished academic as well as career achievements while pursuing a higher education. An overwhelming majority of IECRM students work full-time as electrician’s apprentices while they complete their education at IECRM. IECRM alumni includes: business owners, Master Electricians, a member of the State Electrical Board, C-Level executives, IECRM instructors, and many more accomplished tradesmen.

“Well guys, we finally made it and man does it feel good,” said Kole Towner, during his Valedictorian speech. “It is amazing how fast time flies. We are now fully equipped with the knowledge we need to be successful in our careers as electricians. Today, when you walk out that door, I want you to hold your heads up high knowing that you have accomplished something truly great. We have accomplished something that our families can be proud of. This is not the end, it is only the beginning of our careers.”

Keynote Speaker at the graduation ceremony was Mike Epstein, a past cast member of ABC’s Extreme Weight Loss television show.

During the ceremony, several graduates and underclassmen were awarded for achieving high academic honors, perfect attendance, competing in the 2014 Wire-Off Competition, and other achievements. Several IECRM instructors received gifts of gratitude for their 5, 10, or 15 years of dedication to teaching IECRM students. Every graduate received a 10-piece IDEAL Industries toolkit as a graduation gift. All gifts were generously donated by IDEAL Industries, Inc. and Milwaukee Tool.
